From the Principal

         Welcome to Kahlil Gibran School !  Our school, from its foundation, has stressed academic excellence.  Our goal is to provide the best education possible for each student.  Our school's success rests on parental input and involvement, therefore, it is imperative for us to work together as partners in your child's education. 

About Our School

Welcome to the Kahlil Gibran School Website!

Our Mission
        The staff and parents of the Kahlil Gibran Elementary School are committed to establishing a safe, positive environment for learning.  Our curricula will reflect diversity of cultures to enhance the development of each student.  This will be accomplished through our Reading Writing Magnet Programs.  Our students will be literate and productive citizens.  Our expectations for academic excellence are high.  Students are taught in a challenging environment that encourages creativity, participation and involvement. This philosophy is enhanced through positive open lines of communication with each child, parent, teacher and school administrator.  Higher order thinking is encouraged to assure each child's future success.
